Hi,
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr.Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to answer your query.

Dull ache in the right upper quadrant could be due to peptic ulcer disease, gallbladder disease or liver disease. Since CT scan of the abdomen did not show a diseased gallbladder or a diseased liver and since you have a bloated feeling also, I would suggest an upper GI endoscopy be done to rule out peptic ulcer disease.
Check your blood glucose level also to rule out diabetes which can cause gastroparesis with symptoms like abdominal bloating.

I hope that answers your question.

Needle like sensations usually occurs due to nerve pain.
Check your blood glucose level to rule out diabetes.

Hi,
As I have mentioned earlier, it is due to involvement of nerves ( neuropathy).
Diabetes is just one cause of neuropathy. Other causes should be looked in to in your case.
You need a complete neurological examination.
Consult your doctor for this.
I hope that answers your question.
